    I have three switches across 2 levels in my house all controlling the lights on two levels of the house landings (spotlight group on ground and landing light on 1st).

    2 switches - control spotlight group downstairs (same floor) and upstairs landing light
    1 switch - control spotlight group downstairs and upstairs landing light (same floor)

    I would like to have the top control the top and the bottom switches work on the spotlights on the ground floor, I wondered if there was a reasonably easy solution?!?!





    Ignore the images below, tried to remove, can't :/

    the switch you call G1 is an intermediate switch, meaning that on group of lights has 3 way switching. it may be possible to reconfigure the switching arrangement, but it's not a DIY job. replacing switches like for like is not a problem.
